Good morning, East Village.

Local nightlife impresario Ravi DeRossi and the team behind Proletariat beer bar got a “civic lashing” at Monday’s S.L.A. Licensing Committee meeting, reports Grub Street. The committee was perturbed that they didn’t get a 30-day notice before Mr. DeRossi converted the now-shuttered Jane’s Sweet Buns into the bar. Committee chair Alexandra Militano called it a “ruse” and the board voted unanimously to deny the team’s request to lengthen its bar. The foodie site writes that committee member David McWater told the crowd, “I wouldn’t vote for this alteration if Baby Jesus came down here.” Grub also notes that Paulaner Brauhaus, the Bowery beer hall that has faced its share of construction and community board woes, was granted approval for a liquor license. And Mighty Quinn’s, taking over the old Vandaag space, was approved for a liquor license transfer and will open next month.

Castmembers of “All-Star Celebrity Apprentice,” including Bret Michaels, La Toya Jackson, Lil Jon, and Dennis Rodman took over The Meatball Shop on Stanton Street yesterday for filming, reports Bowery Boogie, which has a pic of the crew in action. Bowery Boogie also has details for filmmakers on submissions to the third annual LES Film Festival, which will be held June 13-23, 2013.

Finding a hotel room in Manhattan that won’t break your budget is possible, assures The New York Times. Case in point: East Village Bed & Coffee. Single rooms go for $120 and doubles, $145, and each one has a different theme, like the Dutch and Afghani rooms, as well as common, well-equipped kitchens and free bikes for borrowing. The Times also notes that Italian restaurant L’Apicio on East First Street is opening tomorrow in an area that it says “is becoming quite a restaurant hub.” The restaurant has a substantial list of pastas and various polentas, as well as a roast-pig entrée served family-style.

For a cool $13,500 a month, you can rent an apartment on East Fifth Street between Avenues A and B, reports EV Grieve. A listing for the duplex apartment boasts a private, three-level garden “that must be seen to be believed,” an “open chef’s kitchen and dining room bathed in southern light overlooking your private garden, a spacious queen sized bedroom and a stone tiled bathroom.” The garden level features a huge living room with stone floors.

And street artist BluDog10003 , known for sticker bombing recycled and reclaimed items and mixing art with social awareness, will have a pop-up store at the Michael Mut Gallery starting October 24, with an opening party the following day at 6 p.m.

Correction, Oct. 17, 2012: An earlier version of this post misstated that Paulaner Brauhaus was approved for a liquor license at the former Vandaag space. It is Mighty Quinn’s, not Paulaner that is going into the space.
